Tossal dels Altars is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.488m (8,162ft) above the sea level, located in the province of Lleida in the autonomous community of Catalonia, Spain. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of the country.
The road to the summit, located in the Vall Fosca valley, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Thunderstorm activity can quickly change unpaved roads to four-wheel-drive condition or make them impassable. Its many twists, turns and narrows can pose a challenge to even the most experienced drivers. The road is not easy, though. Up, down, right, left all the time.
